2020: Covid-19 pandemic, systemic racism and structural inequities, social uprising movements, climate change, and upcoming election. These are some of the most alarming issues emerging and being discussed this year alone, although most have been ignored for far too long. We invite everyone to a conversation aimed to practice "hope as discipline"*. Together, via zoom group meetings and reading through some of the most important manifestos, we will collaboratively build our own living document to reflect the conditions of our realities as well as sought imaginaries.A transcription of the online discussions will generate a google doc as the manifesto, a proclamation of thoughts, feelings, beliefs and doubts that equally manifest the urgency for hope and aspirations of our communities. Its printed form will be produced by the UCLA 2020 New Wight Biennial. The online workshop is organized by artists, Silvi Naçi and Gosia Wojas and scholar Ana Baginski, and in conjunction with the UCLA 2020 New Wight Biennial, curated by Susan Aparicio and Nathaniel Whitfield. *"hope as discipline" is a phrase famously said by a restorative justice activist, Mariame Kabe.
